Rai inaugurates two mohalla clinics
NEW DELHI: Delhi Labour Minister Gopal Rai on Saturday inaugurated two mohalla clinics in his Babarpur constituency amid a protest by BJP workers. According to the minister, BJP workers staged a protest against the inauguration of a mohalla clinic in North Ghonda.
There was no immediate reaction available from the BJP.
After the event, Rai shared a video of the protest on Twitter and sought to know "why the BJP is scared of opening of a mohalla clinic".
In the video, some people are seen waiving black flags and those of the BJP at the event while supporters of the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) are heard raising slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Vice chairperson of Dialogue and Development Commission of Delhi, Jasmine Shah, also took to Twitter to criticise the BJP.
"The most disgusting kind of politics at display in Delhi... BJP leaders opposing the inauguration of a mohalla clinic for the poor. Yes, you read that right," he said.
The Aam Aadmi mohalla clinics will provide quality primary healthcare services in Babarpur area at the doorstep, Rai said in a statement.
